The very first play doll (not baby doll) that my daughter Megan ever got was a Corolle doll. She was a little ballerina that Megan named Baby Judy and she had the sweetest little face. Actually, she looked like this:

Not only was she just the sweetest thing ever, it is the first time I remember being introduced to the signature Vanilla smell that Corolle dolls are famous for.

While I was at Toy Fair I had the pleasure of visiting the Corolle booth and falling in love with Corolle dolls all over again!!

Corolle Les Cheries line

The Les Cheries dolls are just so cute! They are 13″ dolls that have fun, up to date fashions and sweet faces that little girls will just love! Starting with the doll wearing the red vest we have Capucine, Chloe, Cecile, Clara and Camille. I think these cuties would make perfect little sisters for American Girl dolls.

Here is a closer view of their little faces and some of their fashions hanging in the background. Corolle dolls are very high quality and have such a sense of style about them. Natalie actually has her eye on Chloe these days – I have added it to her already mile-long doll wish list.

Corolle Minis

The little Corolle Minis are new for 2012 and I have not seen them online yet. Let’s just say they are going to be fun to collect! If I remember right, they are about 6″ tall.


For the younger doll lover, the Miss Corolle dollies are just so sweet! They would make a great best friend for Bitty Baby or one of the Bitty Twins. They are 14″ tall and have soft bodies and hair you can style.  Lou is the sweet little Asian girl in the pink polkadots and she has to be my favorite!

My camera card had died right before I got to the Corolle booth so I didn’t get as many photos as I would have liked, but if you ever get a chance to hold a Corolle doll for yourself in a store, take a smell – her sweet vanilla scent is just perfect for creating a memory of childhood. Corolle also makes dolls and doll furniture appropriate for infants and toddlers that are just so sweet. I have to put that on my list next time I am looking for a gift for a little girl! Corolle is just a classic!
